Connecting the World of Liver Transplantation is the motto of the 2021 ILTS Virtual Congress of ILTS, ELITA and LICAGE, reflecting our commitment to bringing together our multidisciplinary community to learn and share together. It covers all aspects of liver transplantation and is the place to be for hepatologists, pediatricians, anesthesiologists, critical care specialists, oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, and researchers.

By transforming to a digital format this year’s congress will allow liver transplantation experts to participate easily from all over the world. You will be able to interact with high-level speakers and connect virtually with your peers. Look forward to 80 hours of scientific content, 340 presentations, and 60 sessions with live Q&A! On- demand abstracts, interactive ePosters, updates from industry partners and “Meet the Expert” sessions complete the program.

Let’s connect in May!
